Minimalist Apartment Tour 2018

This post has been a long time coming. I have been meaning to bring you an apartment tour since I moved into my ‘new’ place, almost exactly one year ago now!

As you will see, the decor in my apartment is pretty simple. I really don’t have a lot of furniture, as I prioritise empty space. The place is quite small, consisting of just a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living room.

When designing your space, it is really important to consider your authentic needs. As with all spects of my minimalist journey, I have really thought about what I do and do not need in my apartment. Below are the factors that have influenced my decision making.

  1. Usability. The main factor that has influenced the decor of my home is how I use it. I have prioritised objects that are useful to me, and eliminated things that are not. The main things I do in my apartment are sleeping, working and eating. Most things in the apartment pertain to these activities.
  2. Lifestyle. I spend a lot of time moving around these days, and I want to do this more in the future. I also work a lot, and most of my leisure time is spent outdoors. I therefore do not want a high maintenance home. I want it to be simple, clutter free, and easy to maintain.
  3. Aesthetic. I like clean, neutral, uncluttered spaces. Lots of surfaces, and things on surfaces stress me out. I also really love rustic looking objects, and wanted this to be reflected in my space.
  4. Maintenance. I do not like cleaning, and I do not have a lot of time to clean. At the same time, I need my space to be clean! I have designed my place in a way that it is low maintenance. Cleaning was one of the main reasons I got rid of my couch.
  5. Future goals. I do not want to spend all of my time in my home town next year. I want to be more mobile, and possibly even move away. For this reason, I have been keeping a minimum of belongings. I know that what I do own could be packed up really quickly and easily.

Below is my apartment tour video.

I recently deleted my Facebook account, but you can still check me out on YouTubeInstagram, and Pinterest! I also have a Patreon account, where I post additional content weekly. Patreon subscribers receive a number of benefits, including additional weekly content, early access, and discount in the Small Wardrobe shop.

As a final note, here is a new YouTube channel I have started!
